Red Sox ban fan from Fenway for racist taunt

Red Sox ban fan from Fenway for racist taunt

LeBron James spoke up on the incident at Fenway Park earlier this week, saying that while he's never personally experienced racism from Boston fans, he applauds the reception Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones received the next night.

United States media reports said a Red Sox supporter, Calvin Hennick, had notified stadium staff on Tuesday after the fan made a racist remark as a Kenyan woman sang the national anthem.

A bystander alerted Fenway Park security about the offending fan's actions after he twice used a version of a racial slur, according to the Associated Press. The man reportedly denied using the phrase.

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Cardinals' home game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night has been postponed by bad weather.

At the same baseball game that saw Boston Red Sox fans make amends with a player who was targeted by racial slurs at Fenway Park, one fan used a slur to comment on a singer - and that fan has now been banned from the stadium.

That's two Red Sox fans being banned from Fenway Park in the past week as a result of exchanging racial slurs.

Red Sox: Farrell said knuckleballer Steven Wright, who was put on the disabled list Monday with a sprained left knee, is "contemplating the options that are available to him and "surgery's not ruled out.".

I just feel comfortable talking to people. "I'm going to be blunt - I don't like politics". Sellentin was unavailable for comment.

As NPR reported, "At Tuesday's game, many fans applauded and stood up as Jones went to bat in the first inning".

Jones was ejected Wednesday night while arguing balls and strikes in what has been an emotional series, on and off the field.

The Red Sox, who issued an apology to Jones and the Orioles on Tuesday, said they were "sickened" by the incident and that they maintain a zero tolerance policy for such fan behavior.

Gausman said it was "pretty bush league" that he was tossed, especially since Red Sox starter Chris Sale was merely warned after throwing a pitch behind Manny Machado the night before.

Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz pitched well for the Red Sox again. "We have to recognize that this exists in our culture". The under is also 15-5-2 in the Red Sox' last 22 home games, is 33-16-3 in their last 52 games overall, and is 37-17-3 in their last 57 games versus American League East opponents. "I went to the GM and I complained about it loudly and I wanted more security behind our dugout and he told me: 'That's just the boys having a little fun'".

The Red Sox appear determined to counter the image of their stadium and city as places openly hostile to minorities, but Hennick, shaken by his experience, was left pondering the hate he may not have fully realized was in his midst.
